Research groups in the Medical School work closely with our colleagues in the rest of the Faculty of Health and Medicine on the Faculty's core interdisciplinary research themes: Ageing, Biostatistics and Epidemiology (CHICAS), Infectious Diseases, Mental Health and Public Health Inequality.

Funding for research in the Lancaster Medical School comes from a variety of sources including:
- Research councils such as BBSRC MRC and ESRC
- NHS sources such as NIHR and University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust
- Charities such as the Wellcome Trust, North West Cancer Research, Association for the Study of Medical Education, National Gamete Donation Trust
- International sources such as the National Institutes of Health USA and World Health Organization.
